Auralex is now shipping its HoverMat Isolation Platform. They tell us that HoverMat is a sturdy, slip-resistant drummers' mat that improves acoustical isolation and clarifies drum tone. Like Auralex's HoverDeck Isolation Riser, the HoverMat isolates a drum set from the floor or a hollow stage, reducing coloration from floor resonance by decoupling the drum kit, thereby resulting in a tighter, more pure sound for both studio and live applications. The HoverMat and HoverDeck can also be used in combination for extra isolation.
The HoverMat comes as a 4'x6' section of Auralex's a sound-deadening SheetBlok sound barrier material, covered with charcoal gray Ozite-type, commercial-grade, road-ready carpet, and is ideal for musicians on the go, worship groups, live performance venues, or anywhere a drum kit needs additional isolation.
The result is a tighter, more focused and pure drum sound night-in and night-out. Auralex says that the HoverMat can be rolled up after any performance or session, and the included heavy-duty cinch sack makes transport a breeze.
